According to leaker Ice Universe, Samsung could introduce a video recording function in 4K at 120 fps in the Galaxy S24 Ultra, bringing the South Korean flagship to the level of the action cameras and top-of-the-range Sony Xperia.
While the start date of the January 17, 2024 is getting closer, new information is emerging Galaxy S24 Ultra from Samsung. The well-known leaker Ice universeIn a recent post on X (formerly Twitter), he hinted that the successor to the Galaxy S23 Ultra (currently available on Amazon at 1,299 euros in the 512GB version) could offer a long-awaited feature: video recording in 4K at 120 fps (4K120).
This recording capability, already present in the action camera segment and in some Sony Xperia flagships such as the Xperia 1 V, represents an important step for the Galaxy series. Recently also the flagship Nubia Z60 Ultra Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 introduced a 4K recording option at 120 fps with all three camera sensors. However, it is not yet clear whether Samsung will implement an option high quality slow motion for all focal lengths of the Galaxy S24 Ultra and whether there will be recording time limits.
The introduction of this feature in the Galaxy S24 Ultra would be a significant improvement over its predecessor, the Galaxy S23 Ultra, which did not allow switching between different focal lengths when recording video in 4K at 60 fps. According to previous leaks, this limitation will be overcome in the new generation. Video recording in 4K with 120 fps is not an absolute novelty in the smartphone sector – for example OnePlus 9 Pro was already able to do this – this function remained relatively rare. The possible introduction of such a feature in the Galaxy S24 Ultra would send a clear signal to the rest of the industry about Samsung’s innovation ambitions.
However, Ice universe added another post indicating that the feature is currently in the testing phase and therefore may not be ready for launch or even be excluded from the final version of the device.
